by lachicaruns on

For my marathon training plan, South Higgins Lake gave me to me (yes, to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas):

12 suspicious sounds

11 startled chipmunks

10 total miles

trail run with bridge

9 water stops

8 ducks a swimming

7 trail miles

lake shot

6 tripping roots


5 doggies walking

4 silly selfies

silly selfie

3 deer a leaping

leapin deer

2 tired tootsies

And a nap. Cuz I really need a long, long nap.

Happy running!

Did you race today? How was your run? Do you ever write your blog posts while you’re running? (I’m asking…for a friend.)

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.
